Henrik Olsson, Anders Dahl - splendor [cnv 08]


Published September 5, 2004


Media artist Anders Dahl (with releases on Komplott and Underhund) and percussion improviser Henrik Olsson (of Sheriff -Häpna- and Gul 3) create out of sober means (no mystery here: just see the track titles) a sound-world richly evocative of a buddhist temple ritual for the digital age - or, leading us even further abroad, into as yet unmarked and apocryphal ethnological territories as non-descript as the environmental sounds which constitute the backdrop to these elusive goings-on. Or is this rather the presentation of an experiment in sonification, with the simple pastoral scene of sheep grazing in the fields as its subject? This is romantic music, though, being without any sure sense of territorial or scientific advancements to be made in the end  rather, the dialectical opposites of the Âold and the ÂnewÂ; the Âknown and the ÂunknownÂ; and finally, of the Ânatural and the Âdigital dissolve into perfect and inseparable union - no questions asked, no answers required. Just dream along to the splendor of this bio-electric a-topia. XXI century chamber music.
